Matrix Games Announces Operation Barbarossa - The Struggle for Russia! The Fate of the Eastern Front is in your hands!
Matrix Games and Binary Evolution Studios are thrilled to announce that they will be bringing gamers Operation Barbarossa – The Struggle for Russia, an elegant and challenging World War II strategy game perfect for both new and veteran wargamers!
David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Operation Barbarossa is a splendid combination of intuitive gameplay and challenging strategy with plenty of historical detail. Similar to the old “General” series of wargames, gamers will find that they can hit the ground running without a steep learning curve, but the gameplay will entertain and challenge even veteran wargamers!”

Aimed at all levels, from those who have never played a wargame before to those who know the history of World War II in detail, this is an entertaining and mentally challenging game of combined arms strategy. Your armor, infantry, artillery and air units will follow you through the most crucial battles of the Eastern Front. You will be able to choose from 47 different upgrades and improvements for your units as well as add new forces based on your success in the campaign.
